A little fishy

IMG_3882

February seemed mighty loooong didn’t it?  Or maybe it’s just because I love March.  4 birthdays to celebrate within 1 month = birthday cake all month long!  So by April we’re all sick of sugar and my pants are tighttttt. ;)

Juice Boxes Quilt, Cluck Cluck Sew

I made this top in September (more info on the top and fabric here ) and I’m still in love with that goldfish print.

It’s a very bright quilt.  :)  I quilted it with straight lines about 1 1/2” apart.

The back and binding are from JoAnn's.

Isn't that binding fabric fun ?~! I picked up a bit of too and have had using in strip piecing. I'll have to try it as binding on a small piece (that's what I have left). I love the colorful quilt front. The pattern looks great

Your March sounds like our January and February. I usually declare March our sugar free month. ;)

Love the quilt.

Hello, this is my first visit, I've just had a lovely time looking around. Your work is amazing!
I'm new to patchwork, bought my first fat quarter last week, I think I'm going to find your blog very helpful.
Going shopping tomorrow to buy some fabric to make your camera strap!!
Kindest regards from the french alps.

this is a really nice and pretty quilt. thanks for sharing.

Rachel at Stitched in Color said...

Sweet quilt. I keep forgetting how nice straight lines are! Now that I can FMQ, I'm lazy about quilting with straight lines. =)

I agree that Feb could have been way shorter. Welcome March!

Anne said...

Such a cute little quilt. Enjoy your cakes this month.

Ellen said...

I love that quilt--especially because it's all about the fabric. Straight line quilting is also my favorite. I can see myself making one of these.

Kate said...

Stunning!
I have some of that Goldfish fabric in my stash but I dont want to cut it til I find the perfect project :)

Susanne vb said...

What cuteness!!

1. The straight line quilting is just the ticket.
2. FISHES ! (I have a yard, well, not anymore...I'm carefully using a little here and there..)

3. C'mon SPRING.

AnnMarie said...

Love it ~~ especially the back!

Brenda said...

Your quilt is gorgeous---so cheerful. My birthday is March 12, and my dad's is March 13. Bring on the birthday cake, Baby---I will be wearing my stretchy pants with the elasticized waistband.
